Why is Maintenance so Important Before Summer Starts?

Why is Maintenance so Important Before Summer Starts? | A/C Designs

Summer is right around the corner, and it won’t be long before we see temperatures in or approaching three digits in the Jacksonville, FL area. While your air conditioning system may be handling the current temperatures without issue, now is the time to ensure your unit is able to keep up with the stress that hot weather brings.

3 Reasons Why Now is a Good Time for A/C Maintenance

1. Uncover potential issues now

Once the summer weather hits in full force, the last thing you want is for your HVAC system to fail. In many cases, a maintenance program will keep your air conditioner running efficiently. A properly maintained unit generally does not require as many repairs and the life of the equipment is extended. Regular maintenance also reduces the risk of needing an emergency repair.

2. Reduce Energy Use

Homeowners in Jacksonville find their energy use and subsequently, their related costs for utilities, increase during the summer. If your A/C system isn’t maintained or if its components are dirty, it is likely that the system will need to work harder to cool your home, and you could pay up to an additional 20 percent more to operate it.

3. Increase Your A/C Unit’s Lifespan

By opting for regular maintenance and routine checkups for your HVAC system, the wear on its parts is reduced. Not only does this mean these parts will last longer, but they will also work better together, resulting in greater efficiency and a longer lifespan.
